Pyatt/Boyle/Dorsett would be alright, and I liked the way they played in the playoffs, but I would shop Pyatt to Carolina to see if they'd straight-swap for McBain. I'd sacrifice some size in Pyatt to bring in someone with a little more intensity and edge.
Haley is on a one-way deal next year, too. Could see him some more.
